    nvq 3 equalivent to aqf diploma

    CK2B/Steve Thanks for your advice and comments. Have e-mailed vetassess and await response. My wife also has BTEC qualifications but we had assumed that these would not be sufficient. Am I right in thinking that others have been successful with these. Points don't matter to us as we will be applying for Australian sponsored designated area visas (brother nad sister both citizens in northern Queensland) so any positive assessme- nt will do! Tim
    BTEC do a number of quals.

    The BTEC nationals are Level 3 quals
    Higher Nationals are Level 4 (HNC - 10 units/ HND 16 units)

    CK2B had a National Certificate and got a positive assessment

    Unfortunately I don't think Vetassess will tell you until they've loo-
    ked at it.

    A poll on this site to pool assessments would give us some ideas, but
    even then you couldn't be certain of a pass

      Hi Steve, This is where I got confused, if you look at the extract below it states SOL - Associate Professionals- All occupations in this major group ha- ve a level of skill commensurate with an AQF Diploma (3 years full ti- me study) or higher qualification. In some instances relevant experie- nce is required in addition to the formal qualification. but then when you read the individual job descriptions and qualif- ications 3129-13 Metallurgical and Materials Technician-Skill Level: The entry requirement for this occupation is an AQF Certificate IV or higher qualification or at least 3 years relevant experience. In some instances relevant experience is required in addition to the formal qualification. Registration or licensing may be required. So having stated in the opening paragraph that an AQF Diploma is need- ed for ALL occupations in this group the document then specifies that for the profession detailed above (which is in the associate professi- onals group) an AQF Certificate level IV is sufficient. From what my agent says there are two non trade profession on the VET- ASSESS list that are accessed at certificate level. This is good for us though as with a bit of creativity my hubby can have his skills tested as a Metallurgical and Materials Technician us- ing his NVQ L3 in Refining Process Operations. We were going to nomin- ate Safety Inspector but we really need to acheive a possitive assess- ment first time not because of money but because my hubby has accepted voluntary redundancy and is on 90 day notice from October which means he could be required to finish work as early as January 2005. We would like to have our visa by early 2005 just in case. ACE
      This thread is interesting, and I believe Lavinia has succeeded in gett-
      ing a positive assessment based on ths.

        Cheers Steve, hopefully I'll be posting a similar thread in a few
        months.

          Hi Steve,

          yes, I did get a positive assessment based on the above, but I'm not
          sure if my case can be of any help.

          I'm from Germany and have a German apprenticeship in hotel business, so
          innitially I applied as Hotel Manager Diploma level.

          German apprenticeships usually take two or three years and are based on
          the dual system, i.e. one or two days per week in a vocational school
          and the rest of the week practical training in a company, in my case a
          hotel. It took Vetassess almost four months to assess my application
          negative, so I thought it must have been close, and when I remembered
          that Vetassess only assess the level of education and not the subject I
          went through all occupations on the SOL that are assessed by Vetassess
          until I found three that only required Certificate IV level.

          I had a reassessment as Building Associate Professional which was
          assessed positive within four weeks, so apparently with no problems.
          Before I reapplied I asked an Agent to look into my case (George
          Lombard), who called Vetassess and talked to my case officer about the
          above option. She agreed there was a chance (not 100% though) I would be
          assessed positive, and all went well.

          If you have a look at this link

          http://eurotuteur.ac-
          strasbourg.fr/a_comparison_of_vocational_qua.htm

          you will find a comparison between German and UK qualifications. My
          German qualfication (Kaufmanngehilfenprüfung) is considered equivalent
          to an NVQ3 level.

          I wish all of those waiting for a positive assessment good luck with
          your plans!!!!

            Hi Lavinia:

            Thanks for the info, George Lombard is dealing with my case and I've
            mentioned all this to him.

            I was convinced that you MUST have a AQF Diploma level qulification to
            get through, but it seems that there are some areas which may take you
            over the line if your qualification is borderline.

            I assume you have applied for your visa. On the recent experience
            section what have you put as your SOL occupation?

            I also presume you are applying under 139 Designated area sponsored>

            regards

            Steve

              Yes, I am going for 139 Designated area sponsored and no, I haven't
              applied yet. I have to wait until February in order to get the 12 out of
              18 months work experience as Project Administrator (ASCO 3292-11).
              Keeping my fingers crossed that my work profile is o.k. for Dimia.

              If everything goes well I am hoping to move to Australia in January
              2006, perhaps even summer 2005 if we front load and our application is
              processed really fast.

              Regards

              Lavinia

                  Hi

                  New to this forum. Also hoping for NVQ3 (Vocational Assessor Award
                  D32/33) to be equivalent to AQF Diploma. Just found this.

                  http://www.tafensw.edu.au/nsi/index....geIndex=1388&-
                  divID=4.79

                  Not sure if these guideline are followed by VETASSESS though.

                    There is certainly a discrepency on the TAFE site. A Higher National
                    Certificate is one level higher than an NVQ3, same level as the HND but
                    with fewer units, and usually done on a part time basis.

                    Vetassess have said that the NVQ3 will be acceptable against AQF
                    Diploma, so you may be ok.

                    I wouldn't take the TAFE site at face value as they've made one
                    mistake already.

                    You'd certainly be worth giving the Vetassess route a go I rteckon.
